requests. it is in america's interests, along with our european and canadian allies, to forge strategic partnerships with arab nations as we move forward into this new era of change in the arab world. there are very specific re reasons, strategic regional concerns, and rationales as to why the united states will support this. we did not lead this. we will not engage in unilateral action in any way, but we strongly support the international community taking action against government and leaders who behave as gaddafi is unfortunately doing so now, and we think an international border that can bring about this kind of unity is very much in america's interest. >> you just said that conditions are unfolding that will create a new environment in which people will act, including those around colonel gaddafi. does that mean that you are in the sense -- in essence giving up on trying to remove colonel gaddafi? we're aiming the message at all of the decision makers inside libya. the opposition is largely led by those who defected from the gaddafi regime or who formerly served ait. it is certainly

the obvious. america has to get its fiscal house in order. how we got here is debated but certain things are indisputable. we have two wars that have been paid for on the credit card. we had tax cuts that went to the high income americans that are on the credit card. we recently extended them at the cost of $700 billion to the deficit. we had irresponsible behavior on the part of wall street that required rescuing the financial system in america so that main street could fight and survive another day. and then that led to a collapse in the economy and 10% unemployment that required governmental action in order to try to stabilize the economy. we have a long way to go in restoring the economy, but that has to be our first mission. the republican proposal on how to address this budget in these continuing resolutions will fail. the reason it will fail is because it fails to do what must obviously be done if we're going to have long-term fiscal stability and that is put everything on the table. the cuts that are proposed by the republican majority, unwise as they are, cannot do the job. the
